Subject: Not for feminists
Honeymoon in Bali (the original title of this movie) shows that back in 1939 all successful career women longed to give up their careers, affluence, and personal freedom to marry a man who would tell them what they thought, gave them a man to wait on and who could fulfill them with a child or several.

In this film that is just what happens. The message is blatant. When faced with a strong man, women succumb to their 'natural' instincts of docility, domesticity, motherhood, and passion. As Fred MacMurray's character says about the Balinese women, "Even though they may kick and scream and say 'no', they really want it."

How times have changed. But for some viewers, this film will confirm their view of the world as it should be.

Subject: This Woman needs a Man, and she Gets one

Fred MacMurray plays a Man of strength and integrity who is able to see deeply into other people's character, and is not afraid to speak his truth, even to a woman. Some of his ideas about marriage are indeed seriously dated by today's standards, but he possesses sufficient backbone to make a true life partner that Gail can grow to trust and respect. Sure they have different viewpoints, but part of the work of a successful marriage is to reconcile those differences and build common ground—and I get the sense that they will be able to do just exactly that, even though, with two such strong-willed people as these, there will surely be fireworks over it. :) What Gail definitely does not need is a doormat, and she won't be getting one with Mr. Bill Burnett.

I just watched it again and loved it even more the second time around - even with the singing.

Fred MacMurray is just great in this film.

Totally dated,silly,improbable, sexist, cute, and adorable.Macmurray knows how to charm, and Akim Tamiroff is underplayed as a window washer. And the hero takes the elevator into the sunset; singing of course.
